post #12781 of 12792

I am all in for the Geek Wave XD Titanium. After that no more DAPs. The DX200 was supposed to have been in the works for a very long time. So i am skeptical about it ever being launched, especially after the way they pruned their product list!

Still loving it, despite it being a relic now.

 

 

How difficult is it to replace the battery?  I don't see any screws - do you just pry the back cover off?

 

(BTW, relic or not, I've not heard any standalone DAP/DAC sound  better . . . or as good for that matter)

iBasso will send u a file on instructions to change the batt, but yes, u will need to remove the back plate.

 

I'm contemplating getting a HM802 or Calyx M as a complement to DX100, but this brick remains my first choice rig.

Since the DX100 is discontinued, would it be wise to buy a spare battery to stock? Where would one buy that?

Just ordered an HDP-R10 for "backup".

When you get it, would you mind posting back here with how you find it compared to the dx100?

Thanks!

Who said it was in the works? I imagine something is coming up but I don't see hype by iBasso about it and certainly haven't seen anything promised for a long time that hasn't materialized. Will be fun when something does come up though. :^)

I'm traveling for the next week or so, but will post after when I have a chance to listen.

 

Actually, I had one for about 3 listens and then the unit/battery bricked, so I sent it back for a refund/replacement.  Based on those listening sessions, it seemed to me that the HDP-R10 had essentially the same sound signature as the DX100, but was maybe just a touch clearer in its presentation. I preferred it, but not by much, and of course with only limited time to compare.

Listening to some jazz, John Mayall, :The turning point. Great fun and very open and layered sound. Excellent dynamics!

Good news on our discontinued DX100:

Hi,

We will keep supplying the DX100 battery.  It isn't difficult for us to order battery pack from the manufacturer.  So, you dont have to worry about the availability.
 
Sincerely

I recently ordered a new battery from iBasso - $20 for the battery, $5 shipping to the U.S.  Hopefully it won't be too difficult to replace.

to get the back off of the 100 the first time, just gently pry it up after you take out the 4 screws, two at each end. I use a plastic wedge for this purpose that doesn't mar and surface. The battery is stuck to the back you are taking off so take it off slowly. Look everything over and ask questions if you need to. I didn't find it difficult to replace the battery. I did it about 1 year ago and the new one is working great and holds a very good charge.

Thanks for the suggestions!  Good to hear that the new one seems to be working well.  I'd love to get greater playing time out of mine again.
